Topic: 5 months yesterday since my Tom left

HELLO FROM HEAVEN

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say,
First of all to let you know that I arrived okay.
I AM WRITING THIS FROM HEAVEN where I dwell with God above.
Where there are no more tears or sadness, there is just eternal love.
Please don't be unhappy, just because I'm out of sight,
REMEMBER THAT I AM WITH YOU EVERY MORNING, NOON AND NIGHT.

That day I had to leave you, when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and he said, "I WELCOME YOU. It's good to have
you back again, you were missed while you were gone. For your dearest family, they will be here later on.
I need you here so badly as part of my big plan,
There's so much that we have to do to help our mortal man.

Then God gave me a list of things
he wished for me to do.
And most of my list is to watch and care for you.
AND I WILL BE BESIDE YOU every day, week and year,
and when you are sad,
I am standing there to wipe away the tears.

And when you lie in bed at night,
the day's choes put to flight,
GOD AND I ARE CLOSEST TO YOU
in the middle of the night.....
When I think of my life on earth and all those loving years,
Because you're only human,
they are bound to bring you some tears.
PLEASE DO NOT BE AFRAID TO CRY,
it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers,
unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you of all that God has planned.
But one thing for certain, though my life is over,
I AM CLOSER TO YOU NOW THAN I EVER WAS BEFORE!
And to my friends, trust God know what's best.
i'M STILL NOT FAR AWAY FROM YOU,
I am just beyond the crest.

There are rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb,
BUT TOGETHER WE CAN DO IT
taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you, too.
That as you give unto the world, so the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow or in pain,
Then you can say to God at night, "My day was not in vain. And now I am content that my life was worthwhile. Knowing I passed along the way, I MADE SOMEBODY SMILE".

So if you meet somebody
who is down and feeling low,
JUST LEND A HAD TO PICK HIM UP
as on your way you go.

When you are walking down the street
and you've got me on your mind,
I AM WALKING IN YOUR FOOTSTEPS
only half a step behind.
And when you feel that gentle breeze or wind upon your face,
THAT'S ME GIVING YOU A GREAT BIG HUG OR JUST A SOFT EMBRACE.

Ane when it's time for you to go from that body to be free,
Remember that you are not going,
you are coming here to me,
AND I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU
FROM THAT LAND UP ABOVE.
We'll be in touich again soon.
P.S. God sends his love.
---------
I love and miss you Thomas. These past 5 months have just not been the same. My life seems empty without you, but yet it's so full because of the love we shared. IN SO HUN!

Re: 5 months yesterday since my Tom left

Margaret, lovely! Where does the time go? I also know that Tom will be there when you have your surgery. You watched so lovingly over him and now he will watch over you. On the 1st anniversary of Teddy's leaving I wrote this:

How Are You Doing?
Everyone asks me how I’m doing since you went away,
With a smile on my face I answer, “I really am okay”.
Matter of fact its very hard but I promised to be strong,
Until the time we meet again, in your arms where I belong.

In the morning when I wake, once where there was warmth all night,
There’s nothing but an empty space and a pillow to hold tight.   
Our closet now holds all my clothes it still looks kind of strange,
I try to make it look like more and constantly rearrange.

When I’m in the kitchen and working at the sink,
Many times I stop and this is what I think…..
If Teddy was here he’d grab me to give a little cue,
That he was about to hug me and say his, “I love you”.

No more are the corny jokes that grew longer by the year,
What I wouldn’t give now for just once more, any one to hear.
When someone calls, your message is still kept on the phone,
That way no one knows I am really home alone. 

When day is over and dinner is eaten by one, 
No more thank you-s for the meal well done.
Can’t find anyone to cream or scratch my back
There’s just a big hole here, a hole of midnight black.

But, how am I doing? I’m doing okay,
I know that you would want it that way.
And I know you are with me morning to night,
Still watching over me, that everythings all right!
